UAH Tri-Hard Indoor Triathlon
March 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Kick off the triathlon season with a unique indoor triathlon event at the University Fitness Center, located on the UAH campus! This event is the perfect race for a beginner triathlete to try a multi-sport event, and also great for a seasoned athlete to see how much they can do in the allotted time! Participants will swim for 10 minutes, bike for 30 minutes on a stationary bike, and run for 20 minutes on a treadmill (1.0 incline). Registration is $30.00/participant until February 29th and $35.00/participant from March 1 – March 27th. No registrations will be allowed on the day of the event.
This event will be capped at 30 participants. Top 1st, 2nd, and 3rd placement awards will be presented to the top male and female participants.
In the event of lightning, the pool would not be able to remain open and the event would be rescheduled for April 5th at 9am.
Each participant will receive a shirt and souvenir cup!

A few Q&A:
*Transitions: There will be an 8 minute transition from the swim to bike portion, allowing participants to completely dry off and change into dry clothes and adjust the bikes to what’s most comfortable for them. There will be a 2 minute transition from the bike to the run portion, which should allow enough time to refill your water bottle, stretch, etc..
*The event will go with heats of 5, so each participant will be able to swim in their own lane without having to share.
*Due to the size of the event, we will have medals for the top overall finishers for males and females. However, we will still recognize top placers for age categories (TBD).
*There will be refreshments after the race to help you refuel!
*There are water fountains throughout the facility that can be used and participants are also allowed to use the locker rooms to store their items and to change.
*For the swim portion, please feel free to wear whatever you are most comfortable in. Equipment that will enhance your speed and mobility will not be allowed, such as swim fins, snorkles, etc. Wet suits and goggles are allowed.
*For the bike portion, our bikes are equipped for SPD clip shoes, if you would like to use those.
